Taliban declare China their closest ally

Taliban officials have declared China as their closest ally in the international community.

The militants say Beijing is “ready to invest in and reconstruct” Afghanistan and describe the nation as their “principal partner".

Zabihulla Mujahid, the spokesman for the group, stated the Chinese would help to revive Afghan copper mining. He also praised the Chinese for their One Belt One Road investment project which has forged forward despite criticism from western countries.

China is one of the few countries which did not evacuate staff from their Kabul embassy in the wake of the Taliban’s takeover.

It was also been reported that a Taliban delegation visited China in July for talks with the foreign minister Wang Yi, in Tianjin.Latest Post
